Clinton Rep.: Uncommitted Delegates Could Switch “In August”

Whoa there, tiger. Former Michigan Gov. Jim Blanchard, who is representing the Clinton campaign at today’s Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting, just drew the first boos from the Obama people in the audience. Blanchard, discussing the uncommitted delegates that the Clinton campaign wants assigned from the Michigan primary, said that while most would probably go for Obama, they could be “switching back and forth” “in August.” A not-so-subtle signal of Clinton’s plans to take this to the convention, perhaps?

That’s not the only controversial statement Blanchard made. He also claimed that “no one in Michigan,” including “the news media” “was saying the votes wouldn’t count” in January. That seems unlikely.

More when the committee comes back from lunch later this afternoon.
